yay… just got a GSOP Bucharest package on OnGame. It’s a $1600 buy-in four day nlhe freezeout mtt, with 5 nights accommodation and $700 spending money. Adding the package to this month’s online winnings makes January 2011 my best month yet, despite running pretty rough most of it.
since getting back from vienna, two weeks ago, i played ~850 games, with a 500 game breakeven stretch. that’s pretty painful, and kinda fucked up my game for a while there. but then, had an upswing these last 4 days. up ~35bi in 200 games.
last week, i bought myself a wireless keyboard & mouse kit, webcam and a new printer… just felt i needed a small reward… also bought an 120gb ipod classic yesterday, and right now i’m moving my music collection to it.
i’ll start taking shots at $100s and $200s in february. 5-6bi shots at each level, though, ‘coz i need most of the profit to pay up some of my debts and dad’s operations (he’ll have to get cut again, because of Craiova’s shitty medical system).
a couple of days of peace, that’s what i need right now…
I started April 2010 with the thought of playing an average of 50 husngs on a daily basis (~1500 total for the month). Obviously, I didn’t manage to do that, but I’m pretty happy with my results for the month. Also, april has been the first month of this year I’ve finished as a winner at the MTTs. WHOA !
I kept withdrawing $ almost everyday to put up and pay some of my debts, but didn’t manage to scrape much, because I’ve spent more on bullshit.
These being said, I will only be paying my ~$700 interest this month, and keep grinding the $20s, $30s and maybe move up to the $50s by the end of May.
I’ve also made a propbet with a fellow poker player and friend, Bogdan. Whoever reaches $3k profit from sngs faster (me only playing $20-$50 husngs and him playing his $3-$12 fulltilt 90-135man KO and Rush sngs) wins a week’s trip to Egypt in a nice all-inclusive resort by the Red Sea. ’til now I’m owning him. OBV !
I’ve settled on playing a minimum of 1200 husngs in May (400x$20s,600x$30s and 200x$50s). Let’s hope I’ll win at least 30% more than in April.
Why does every sentence I write start with “I’ve” ? Because I suck.
By the way (no “I’ve”), I’m really thinking on getting some coaching for the 6max cash games in the next couple of months. I have found a very good coach, and rrrrrreally want to learn.
